Situated within the former Brooklodge estate, this ice house was an integral part of the estate owners’ lifestyle, providing a means of keeping food fresh for the Blake family. Built around the 1770’s, this ice house is now derelict and mostly overgrown. 

Ice houses were a common feature of Irish demesne’s and this ice house is a perfect reminder of the services put in place to facilitate the operation of a large-scale estate in the mid-to-late eighteenth century.
